The fifth pathway is one of several ways that individuals who obtain their undergraduate medical education abroad can enter graduate medical education in the United States. It is a period of supervised clinical training for students who obtained their premedical education in the United States, received undergraduate medical training abroad, and passed Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).

 

After these students successfully complete a year of clinical training sponsored by an Liasion Committee on Medical Education-accredited US medical school and pass USMLE Step 2, they become eligible for an ACGME-accredited residency as an international medical graduate.
